Don’t worry, if you don’t like the notion of utilizing old-school metal braces to achieve your desired results, you won’t have to. We offer an excellent alternative orthodontic treatment, it’s called the Invisalign clear aligners program.

1. The Hardware Is Nearly Invisible

The new smile that would result from wearing conventional metal braces is bound to be quite beautiful but odds are you’ll feel anything but beautiful during your orthodontic treatment.

If you are already feeling self-conscious about your smile, you won’t be getting any extra attention on account of your treatment. Remember, with Invisalign there isn’t any metal involved whatsoever. Instead this orthodontic technique makes use of clear (virtually invisible) plastic aligners to move your teeth into proper positions. No one will ever know.

2. These “Braces” Are Removable!

Regular braces must stay in your mouth continuously for 2-3 long years. Invisalign aligners won’t be such a hassle. You can take them out for meals, photos, cleaning, and any other time that makes sense. You do have to wear them for most of the day every day to stay on track, but we can talk about what that really means during your consultation.

3. No Lifestyle Adjustments!

Wearing metal braces can feel like a full time job since you have to schedule time away from your actual job to get orthodontic tune-ups each month. That doesn’t happen with Invisailgn. Instead of that you get to regulate the process by switching out your aligners for the next ones in the series (every two weeks or so). This can be done from the convenience of your own home, around your schedule.

Plus, you won’t have to have special tools, or shop for certain foods that won’t get trapped in your metal wires and brackets. None of those concerns will apply to you. Eat whatever you want, whenever you want.

4. The Treatment Is Comfortable!

Invisalign aligners are pleasant to wear because they don’t cause pain the way that traditional braces can. They are more like a mouthguard in the way that they rest comfortably over your teeth. So, you won’t need to rely on waxes to form a protective barrier over your soft tissues. With your aligners there won’t be any bleeding, sores, or discomfort along the way.

5. The Transformation Is Quick!

With Invisalign, you won’t have to wait long because you will look and feel much better in only about 12 months time. What’s not to love about that?
